All four of Louisiana’s gubernatorial candidates came together in front of a room full of law enforcement officials.  
 
It’s part of the Louisiana State Troopers Association’s Annual Convention in Baton Rouge at the Crowne Plaza. 
 
They all touched on some hot topics, including law enforcement budget cuts, particularly for state police, and what their plans are to improve our budget.
 
“I believe our greatest days are still ahead. I’ll always believe our greatest days are still ahead. I’ll always believe the sun is rising in Louisiana and certainly we have some challenges right in front of us,” said Commissioner Scott Angelle.
 
“You can do more with less, and you can achieve what’s best for people in Louisiana by budgeting frugally, spending wisely and conservatively, and having a vision of where we want to be in the future,” said Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne. 
 
“It takes much more than traditional, vague, political rhetoric or trail blading campaign promises. It takes those two essential ingredients, I just mentioned, real leadership and strong solutions,” said Senator David Vitter. 
 
“So it’s time to put Louisiana first again. We need to confront our challenges, fix our structural deficit and fund our priorities. Yes, public safety is a priority,” said Rep. John Bel Edwards. 
 
The gubernatorial election will be held October 24th.
